Question about Ximeta NetDisk (DHNDU10120)

1 Answer

Netdisk 160 gb ximeta won't get power

I have the 160 GB version that will not power up all of a sudden. It is almost as if there is a short in the power connector or something, as it will stay on if the power cord is barley plugged in, but when i push it all the way in, the power dies. The power adapter light comes on just like normal, just not the lights on the drive itself except for a brief flash, or when i barley stick the cord in just the right spot. And when the power light is on, my PC wont recognize it, most likely because its not getting a full connection. Any ideas? Anyone know how to disassemble this model without breaking it?

You may be right about a connection issue. But it's probably not a short. More likely, it's an open! Anyway, here's how to open the case:

There is a hole on each side of the NetDisk near the back. Face the back towards you, insert a blunt pencil tip or other blunt object able to fit in the hole on each side and press in. (Be gentle, these are plastic tabs on th inside)

At the same time, use your thumbs to slide the top half of the case away from you. (towards the front. Once you get ig toing, you can let go of the pencils and continue. forward with thte top of the case.

Tip

The same for mine external HD


My hard drive was dead and wasn't recognized by the computer, it didn't even start, just a few clicking noises, which according to some of the experiences is the same as a DEAD Hardisk. Anyways, as I read that sometimes this happens as a result of a hit, well, I wacked my HD as a last hope for it to recover its "memory" (as in the movies) and believe me or not, it worked! I don't know if this might help yours, but it saved mine! 
The way I did it was like this: I started the pc and when the HD started to run and I heard a couple of clicks, I hit it against the table while in vertical position (assuming that the arm of the HD might slightly move better that way) one time, and then when the spinning and the first click was heard agin I hit again. After that I heard the typical searching sound of a HD, and you can imagine I started to pray that what I heard wasn't my anxiety sound (if it has any). Now I am a firm believer in the old trick of whacking the old TV to get the vital signal back! 
Good luck to you too!

Burning smell is not good! Open it and check if the smell is coming from the drive or the enclosures circut.

Need a power cord


Hi Tatearian,

Ximeta, like many external drive manufacturers use a fairly custom AC adapter. Finding a replacement is not only difficult but often costs more than the enclosures are worth.

The simplest and cheapest thing to do is go to your local PC shop, ask the technicians there to remove the hard drive from the enclosure and put it in a new one. This won't cost any more than buying a replacement adapter and will be much simpler to do.


Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris
